In the old days they toured and did gigs with Chubby Checker, the Coasters, Bob Seger, Ted Nugent, Question Mark and the Mysterians and Paul Revere and the Raiders.
They backed up Freddy Boom Boom Cannon and Bo Diddlie. Worked for Auto-rama, Dick Clark and Richard Nator. Performed in the Kingdome, Skydome, Astrodome, Silverdome. When the United States Government needed a band to play at the unveiling of the Bill Haley rock and roll stamp they hired-Benny and the Jets band.
More recently they opened shows for Kentucky Headhunters, Humble Pie, Marshall Tucker, Bad Finger, Rick Derringer and Eddie Money. they played the Harley Davidson anniversary ride across America. The Woodward Dream Cruise and video with Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels. Advertised as the first band to play the new Ford Field Stadium in downtown Detroit. They did "JTtheBrick.com" sports radio tour with stops in Boston, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Tampa and Miami.
The 2 man band is very portable, easy in, easy out, self contained, guitar, bass, drum machine. they do a nice mix of music. No job TO BIG, no job TO SMALL. To many people see all the things they have done and think they are too big or expensive. They're not. They really have done it all, from retirement homes to kids shows, from biker parities to back yard parties. They know how to play to the audience in front of us. They like to get the audience involved, and entertain them, do some games and contests, teach them about the history of rock and roll. And like KID ROCK sings on his Cocky CD song #3 "Lay in on Me" -- "Benny and the Jets are HOT."
